A very long time ago, the simplistic Burst mitigation of BSD4.3 was commented out
Details are sketchy, but a properly working client sending out a delayed ACK every
other received segment should be fine with the old burst limit of 4.
However, with IW10, the minimum burst size needs to track this. Furthermore,
ACK compressing (https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=5d9f4262b7ea41ca9981cc790e37cca6e37c789e)
can result in a single ACK only after a high number of segments.
For TCP to maintain reasonably responsive, a minimum number of 2 ACKs per window
is expected - thus a maximum burst limit of cwnd/2.
This patch makes the minimum maxburst value at least as large as the initial window,
and the largest maxbust values - when pipe is equal to half a window - also to cwnd/2.
ToDo: Discuss if initcwnd should be stored in tcpcb directly, when recalculated frequently
in the transmit path.
